Rustic Elegance

I remember the day Julie and Tom called me…in a panic…’Our wedding is Thanksgiving Weekend and no one will take our wedding…AND I want an all fabric bouquet and no one will make one for me” …. I calmed her down and told her she didn’t need to look any further and all those “no’s” were leading her right to me!  From there is was so obvious we were meant to plan her wedding flowers together…an instant connection.  We were able to create a color story that was so unique and perfect for a late fall, rustic wedding.  And her bouquet? Giexsell, my lead designer, and I hand made most of those flowers….5 hours later, isn’t it awesome?  Have a look at Julie and Tom’s very personal, unique, Rustic ~ Elegant wedding!

But before we look at the beautiful photos, I have to talk about these AMAZING vendors!  Eric and his wife Corey are not only the sweetest people they are so very talented!  he loves to get detail shots, as you’ll soon see.

C’mon!  Look at this detail!!!!!!

And just because we LOVE this bouquet…


Tropical Wedding

My sister-in-law was getting married and since they were going to a tropical island for their honeymoon, she wanted her wedding to have that same feel.  Since she and her now husband are young, fun and love a party atmosphere, we thought the luau theme would be perfect.  Unfortunately it was a rainy day, but once you stepped into the room, you were transported onto the tropical island where rain was the last thing on anyone’s mind.

This tropical theme can be used for birthday parties, bridal showers, rehearsal dinners, jack and jill showers and much more!
